This is what I grabbed off the website:
Artist Missy Johnson a dedicated animal advocate has turned her artistic skills into a nationwide movement to celebrate rescue animals. This awareness project, Dogs For The PAWS, started as a collection of 80 paintings of rescue dogs, dubbed the Paws Pack, from all around the country. Her work celebrates these dogs, their spirits, and their touching stories of rescue and rehabilitation. After bringing light to these special dogs, Missy knew she couldn’t stop there. The Dogs for the PAWS movement is gaining national recognition and boasts a fan following that spans the globe. The overwhelming response to the art of Dogs for the PAWS has opened the doors to work on special projects as well as portrait commissions with a variety of clients. Missy is proud to say that her work has helped raise thousands of dollars for animals in need from coast to coast!
So, I met Missy at BlogPaws and I was so moved by her dedication to shelter dogs and her caring spirit. I was lucky enough to chat with her a bit while we enjoyed dinner. I got a chance to get a picture of Pancake Pet Kiko and her Flatpet Wy.
I also met a really special bully named Zooey. Zooey is a mascot for Wishcuit™ and is out to stomp out canine cancer.
What is Wishcuit?
Wishcuit™ (rhymes with “biscuit”) is dedicated to improving the lives of all dogs and supports the efforts of organizations, and non profits that improve their health and welfare. We offer unique products that give back with every purchase, and feel that helping others is as simple, and easy as a stick figure drawing!
This cute, stylish, stick-figure design is the official international symbol for “Love Adds Up™”, a bold and ambitious campaign designed to let dog lovers SHOW THEIR LOVE FOR THEIR DOG! Proceeds are donated to canine cancer research and treatment and rescues.
The design is available on stickers, magnets, apparel, and other goods and products. The stickers have been spotted in South Africa, USA, and The Netherlands, to name a few.
There is so much information about Zooey and Wishcuit™, so make sure you visit the website and also visit their Facebook: http://facebook.com/stickittocaninecancer
